Generation Homes The Mount Swim – 3 April 2021

The soft golden sands and rolling surf is the epitome of a classic Kiwi summer scene, so we’re pumping up this popular event to celebrate everything there is to love about Mt Maunganui’s natural beachfront, island and mountain landscape at The Generation Homes Mount Swim.

Whether you’re keen on swimming around Rabbit and Leisure Islands in the long swim (extended to 2.8km this year), setting your sights on the Amphibian swim/run event, or a bit of everything, there’s loads happening in the water and on the sand to make sure you have a day full of awesome memories.

Why not make the most of this beautiful region over the Easter weekend and bring along your family or a bunch of mates! Beaches, shopping, a vibrant dining scene and countless outdoor activities like climbing up the Mount await in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

The Generation Homes Mount Swim will also host the prestigious Global Swim Series – Global Championships for the first time ever in New Zealand! Swimmers entered in the 2.8km swim will be automatically registered for the Championship event and swim alongside some of the best in the world.
